When it comes to treating acne, herbal soaps are usually better than strong medicated acne soaps - especially since acne skin can be pretty sensitive.
Hopefully your cleanser will not only help reduce breakouts, irritation but encourage healing too.
Acne sufferers come in all different ages with different skin types.
Some may have dry, oily, in between, or mature sensitive skin..... Yes, acne can strike in your late 40's and 50's too.
I think this is why finding the right cleanser is so difficult. Most acne cleanser are a "one size fits all" type product and usually are best suited for young oily skin.
So how do you find one that's best for your type and situation?
While everyone's skin and situation is different, the main problem with most acne cleansers is they can irritate and strip the sebum.
Yes, you want to remove excess oil and impurities, but you don't want to create an imbalance and disrupt the normal pH balance.
Several studies indicate that topical herbs might be helpful in reducing irritation and inflammation. Other herbs, like Sage and Chamomile, can help remove dirt and excess oil without over-drying....... Sounds like a good combination for troubled skin.
|So perhaps an herbal soap might be a better alternative for acne sufferers. Especially if you're using an aggressive acne treatment.|
TIP - The combination of acne medications and over-the-counter acne cleansers might lead to more problems if the products contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. For some people (especially those with mature skin) this can cause excess drying and flaking.
So if you're experiencing these problems, check the ingredients of current acne wash or soap.
Instead Try a Gentle Approach
A liquid herbal based cleanser that contains certified organic aloe and tea tree along with herbal extracts and antioxidants - like vitamins A, B, C and E is best to clean and protect against free radical damage.
This herbal cleanser would be a good option for troubled, inflamed acne skin.
The best part is this cleanser is very inexpensive and lasts forever. A little squeeze will clean and reduce excess oil from the whole face and neck. Don't forget to wash the neck area too - as this area often suffers from breakouts.
Plus, It’s totally green….it doesn’t contain petrochemicals, parabens, dyes, animal ingredients. It’s even packaged in recyclable package.
After one month of using a botanical/herbal soap, some people reported that their sores or lesions started to heal.
They also report that their skin feels softer and more hydrated (not greasy).
More hydration is big plus, especially for those using Isotretinoin or other acne medication that causes extreme dryness, flaking, and peeling.
